1 •In the early 1830s Michael Faraday made the observation that a changing current I P in one electric circuit can cause current to appear (“ induce a current I S ”) in a second circuit. B I S I P Primary Circuit: Source Secondary Circuit: Faraday’s Law: Electromagnetic Induction 2 Faraday’s Law : “The electromotive force, V emf , induced around a closed loop L is equal to the time rate of decrease of the magnetic flux linking the loop.” loop the through flux the is ψ = = where dt d V emf ψ For a coil of N tightly wound turns ∫∫ = = S emf S d .
